Elektra was bred by crossing Early Resin Berry (ERB) and ACDC. The breeder, Oregon CBD, was able to create a very high CBD hemp strain (up to 21%) with less than 0.3% THC through this cross. The parent strain AC/DC is a popular high-CBD strain that can reach up to 19% CBD.
Elektra hemp flower has a strong pine scent with tropical citrus and earth flavors which come from the strain’s terpenes: myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, phytol, alpha-bisabolol, and guaiol are commonly detected Elektra terpenes.
Elektra’s other parent, ERB, is a bit of a mystery. What is known is that it also produces high levels of CBD. ERB has signature sweet berry flavors with hints of citrus. The Elektra hemp strain is likewise high in CBD and rich in flavor. Some users even detect pine and citrus flavors with a subtle spiciness of hops.
